I would rather look at a light than listen to someone turn one syllable into 31 notes– no offense to Ella Fitzgerald or Sezen Aksu or hundreds of other singers. If you’re just showing off, it shows. I was rolling through old photos, listening to NPR, and they had the vocalists on that did the Youtube video of “In the Air Tonight” on the train. They still sound like a one-trick pony. New category for my blog: running NPR crit.
